I have an answer! No plugin needed. I took portrait photos with my phone and then when I dragged the images into the page they all rotated to landscape. The solutions above had me downloading some kind of fix that needed to have JDK installed and when I did all that I found out I had to be the admin for the whole company, so no go. Wow that was frustrating. BUT using this simple hack I was able to get the images into the page in the correct orientation without the plugin. Here's what I did: I opened up all the images from my local in Mac Preview and just roated the images around using the rotate image command. I rotated them 360 degrees. This reset the image marker in the image metadata. When I dragged the images into my page they were all perfectly in portrait. This could work for PC maybe I assume.
This is really disappointing to find that you need a plug-in to allow rotation of an image in a Confluence page. Especially when you import the images in portrait and it rotates it to landscape. This feels like a bug Atlassian should remedy. Being able to share images is a really important feature with collaborative wiki.
You don't have to pay for the Add-on.

I've just tested it out after you insert an image, you will be able to rotate it left or right.
The laser-sharp solution for you is CelesteCS Image Lossless Rotator.
It rotates images lossless, which means the image quality and file size are not changed. Additionally it can rotate images automatically based on EXIF orientation tag. Plus, EXIF data is not lost, so you will not lose the information, where the proto has been made, after rotation.
Hey there everyone,
So you are saying to me that we are using a world known programm for team collaboration where in many of us is the bible of the company and this software can not ROTATE photos and furthermore I have to buy an add on in order to rotate the photos I paste in Confluence ..
My co-worker and I have discovered the following workaround (and this may seem silly):
Open the image in your editor prior to uploading. Rotate the image 360 degrees and save it. After doing this it should upload in the correct orientation. Worked for us. Hope this helps.
In Windows I use paint.net to open each image and then save as JPEG over the top as a lower quality (more appropriate for a web page but not so low as to look bad) Then I drag the photos into Confluence and they look the right way up and are reduced in size so load faster too.
